The current administration inherited a bankrupt country from the previous administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, has said.
Speaking in Abuja on Monday, November 13, he said the revenue generated by the Bola Tinubu-led administration is being used to repay what was taken from the country.
According to him, “I assure you that the Federal Government will not rest on its oars in ensuring a robust and viable defence management and security apparatus to address contemporary challenges even in the face of enormous budgetary constraints.
Yes, we’re facing budgetary constraints. It is okay for me to tell you. Fine, it is important for you to know that we have inherited a very difficult situation, literally a bankrupt country, no money, to a point where we can say that all the money we’re getting now, we’re paying back what was taken. It is serious!
But this administration is doing its best to meet our requirements, particularly the armed forces, and I believe that you leaders will be able to testify to that,”
